In parkour there are both physical and mental challenges to tricks. To achieve this image the athlete made the jump from a thermal tube on to an air-bridge rail. Andrey, the athlete, planned for a month. He said he needed time to overcome the fear mentally.
The difficulty of this trick is that it was necessary to jump over the precipice, over the passing trains from time to time and with that you have no room for error. It was already a difficult jump, but he also had to land on a small rail with both feet, and not miss. That requires special concentration and precise execution.
The whole day we dedicated to training and photography, and at the end of the day, by chance, we were near the desired location. I suggested Andrey go and check the jump one more time, which he did. When he said that he would attempt to land it, I began to lay out the equipment, preparing to take the picture. The resulting image was already made in my head – I just needed to take it.
All in all, everything went fine, Andrey made the jump three times. He was pleased to take this challenge. I was happy that our effort and dedication paid off in the end.
